The holiday season is upon us again and parties, planning and cooking are all on the agenda. We get so busy that we tend to stick to our daily hair and makeup regimen simply because we’re short on time. Let this be the time of year that you allow yourself to try something different and experiment with new looks for holiday functions. Don’t allow the stress that comes along with the holidays add up – have some fun with your style! There are a variety of looks in hair and makeup that can be perfect for a get-together and easier than you think. Many of the events we attend are more formal and therefore our look needs to transition from daytime to evening. This can be simple and stress-free if you plan ahead. For example, if you wear your hair straight on most days, add volume and waves as this is a popular look for the coming season. Big hair is back! Incorporating those waves involves using a big-barrel curling iron or hot rollers. And, for those on-the-go ladies, you don’t even have to wash your hair that evening as the natural oils and products from that morning will give curls more bounce and make them last longer. Also, don’t be afraid to pull out that teasing comb and add some volume to the crown to create additional height. Tease into the first inch of you roots and then smooth the section in front of it to cover the teasing. If you have finer hair and teasing doesn’t always stay, spray the teased area with a bit of hairspray, then smooth over. The key with teasing is not to overdo it.
As far as make-up for a holiday evening goes, play up your eyes by adding a bit more shadow. If you prefer a more natural or nude look on the eyes, play up the lips by adding a pop of color. Choose a deep berry or red shade for a more dramatic evening look. Don’t be afraid of color, this is the time of year to stand out and find colors to compliment your skin tones.
